the charity work but they are not playing a role. here we have stephen colbert, popular and funny character, but speaking in character is highly unusual. i've never seen another human do that. >> although humans behind the scenes have been known to bring elmo and kermit the frog to life to speak to lawmakers. but he says inviting colbert to speak was a gamble. >> dangerous, so close to the election when people are angry at congress and some of them will see this as a publicity stunt g. but still, he says the presence today brought much more attention to the hearing than it might have gotten otherwise. will people remember long-term that he was drawing attention to the issue of immigrant farm workers? cousak says probably not. in washington, molly henneberg, fox news. >> bret: throughout the day, lawmakers continue to react to the colbert appearance. house speaker nancy pelosi said this afternoon, "of course i think it's appropriate. he's an american, right? he can bring attention to an important issue like immigration, i think it's great." on the other side, republican congressman steve kin

, putting one seat short of taking over both house of congress. panel, stephen hayes from "weekly standard," juan williams from national public radio and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. charles, what do you make of this? this is the second report we had this week to suggest big gains, significant gains for republican in congress. >> that is from an analysis of seat-by-seat, state-by-state. i think the number that sort of explains it overall is what is called the generic ballot, where you ask someone if you vote republican or democr democratic in november? it's at the largest spread, 10-point republican lead in the 68 years of gallup will, which means it's, at a time when reagan was a democrat. this is a very long time. this is totally unprecedented. and that portends a wave election. that's like johnson in '64. like reagan in '80. gingrich in the mid-'90s. curiously, every 15 years or so. if that number holds, that generic spread of ten, then you get this kind of wave. i think you do get the house clearly will fall to the republicans. and the senate will be close. i think sabato

, stephen hayes, it turns out as we reported earlier in the 37 races for governor across the country this november in at least 20 of those states, including massachusetts and iowa, that in some cases republicans, some cases democrats, some cases both have endorsed an arizona-style crackdown on ill leam immigrants. will immigration be a voting issue this november? >> it always threatens to be a voting issue and it rarely is a voting issue. this year could be different. you are seeing candidates embrace arizona, but how many have we seen reported on that says it goes further than arizona? that is happening in wisconsin where i was a couple weeks ago. scott walker, the republican governor says i want arizona-plus and take away public funding from the illegal immigrants. >> it also feeds in a narrative that the federal government has been asleep on the job in terms of immigration and come place sant and folks want -- complacent of the folks wanting to take the government back. it will be an issue. of course, i think the economy is the top issue. but i think some folks will go to voting b

democrats' ability to help economy. bring in the panel to talk about it. stephen hayes, senior writer for "weekly standard." juan williams, for national public radio. and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. gentlemen, welcome to all of you. the white house shied away from calling anything a stimulus, and that's what mitch mcconnell did immediately calling at it stimulus. what is it? >> it's a stimulus know the word can't be used anytime. a mini stimulus. classic example of the administration acting for the appearance of activity. i doesn't have a clue what to do. it spent half a trillion on first stimulus. we saw 60% of americans think it did absolutely nothing. and they have no idea. the economy is still in a ditch. so they come up with a mini version of this. which will be throwing $50 billion and it will not leave a trace unlike the interstate highway system or the t.v.a. or the hoover dam which were real infrastructure ideas. this will not leave, absolutely nothing will be left behind. it will be a temporary fix. i like the way the president announces, we heard it will be a

in the panel. stephen hayes, senior writer for "weekly standard." judith miller from the "manhattan institute." and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. charles? >> if that is what you get when a group of hand-pick ed members of an audience, imagine what you would have got with a random selection of audience that would have been more raucous. it clearly is not something that helped him. i was struck by the fact nothing new came out of it. but one statement is classic obama that reappears over and over again. he says my challenge is i'm thinking about the next generation, and there were a lot of folks out there who are thinking about the next election. this is the trophy he uses all the time. "the folks out there" the republicans, only about power, winning election and all that. i, the father of our nation, stand above all this and act only in the national interest looking at the next election. what is so great about it, it's so obviously false. he would haven't been in the meeting in the instance in the first place if he weren't election nearing. he knows the polls are showing that peopl

. stephen hayes, senior writer for "weekly standard." mort kondracke, from roll call. and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. steve, what jumps out at you from reading the pledge to america? >> the fact it's specific and lengthy. almost say it's exhaustive. in a way it's bold and aggressive. look, i take a backseat to no one with my cynicism about these things. in a sense, political gimmick and it will help republicans get elected. i get that. so was the contract with america. if you look back at the contract, even five or six years after the contract was passed, 95 of the programs either scrutinized or eliminated increased in the budget by 10 or 15%. reasons to be skeptical. promises coming out of washington. having said that, this is an impressive document. it is specific about spending levels. turning back tarp, returning to prestimulus levels. repealing healthcare. there are a lot of specifics in here. i think a lot of things for people to like. >> bret: mort, the plan will be rolled out tomorrow. at a hardware store in suburban virginia, as the g.o.p. leaders talk about th

about the back and forth? bring in the panel. stephen hayes, writer for "weekly standard." rick klein, political reporter for abc news and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. steve, two come can meeting events today. one in a hardware store in virginia. and one of the west steps of the capitol where the democratic leaders move the small business bill forward. >> it's an interesting contrast. it's clear in campaign mode here. i think what republicans did worked. it was smart for john boehner and eric canter to step back and let others make the argument, to the extent it triples down to the american voters, which is questionable. it's a good thing to do. the pledge overall is a smart thing to do. it's a good program. bold and aggressive. it doesn't answer all of the questions. of course, what happens on november 3 in some respects in governing is more important than what happens on november 2. it's a campaign document. they are doing it to campaign on something. what it does practically in political terms is it takes away one of two democratic arguments. democrats spent six or eig

with just a two-point lead. that's where we start with the panel tonight. bring in the panel. stephen hayes, senior writer for "weekly standard." henderson from the washington post. syndicated columnist, charles krauthammer. start with the governor's race in california. steve? >> i thought meg whitman answered the charges pretty decisively and offered to put it back, in fact i think the campaign put out the documents so they have the copy of the 1099. gloria allred didn't introduce much. she had promises and said she could produce evidence and never did it. nicky diaz, the poor woman in question who was here illegally left the press conference for a little while because she was uncomfortable and came back and broke down crying, but didn't seem like she was on the same pages gloria allred. we will find out in the coming days when we see the document or paperwork but it smells like a political stunt. >> it's hard to see how this shakes things up. close race, two point on dividing these folks. you look at the press conference and you wonder why the woman was crying. it looked theatrical and st
